Diamonds in the rough

Although we have some huge names performing at the IAStival, like The Sunshine Underground and Turin Brakes, we also have loads of artists performing that are diamonds in the rough.

Friday night will give you the chance to decide two DJ's fate, in our silent disco battle. Subflex and Skitz Sonix will both be playing at the same time over two different channels on a sets of headphones, but which one will you choose? Both of the DJ's have similar dubstep/electro vibes and both will be able to keep the hardcore people raving until the early hours. Subflex's Bobby Hall from Sheffield, has played regular venues in Manchester as well as Raw Festival, where he kept the dance tent booming through the night.

One band to look out for on the Saturday night are One Too Many Kicks, who are coming all the way from Pwllheli in the heart of North Wales to perform. Made up of three guys and a girl, One Too Many Kicks cover songs that you can instantly recognize. When I last went to watch this band they included covers of Blink 182's 'All The Small Things' and covers from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. They covered loads of other tracks that the whole room knew the lyrics to, as well as throwing in some of their own material, which was just as entertaining.

Another one to watch on the Saturday night of the IAStival is the lovely folk/rock band called The Off Chance. This group from Swindon have a brilliantly upbeat sound and a philosophy that their music should be enjoyed with the sun going down behind a festival stage and having their songs floating on the warm air over the crowd, which sounds like the perfect festival scenario. The Off Chance's bass player, Ady Batt, is a former member of 'Shmoo' who are also playing on the Saturday night of the IAStival.

Even though Ady has played in both bands, The Off Chance and Shmoo couldn't be more different. Shmoo are a band of two brothers from South Manchester that give lively performances of their eccentric, electric tracks.

And finally Saturday night of the IAStival will be hosting Ultimate Elton. Ultimate Elton, who is Paul Bacon by day, is an Elton John tribute act that is almost as good as the real thing. Ultimate Elton has a wardrobe full of replica classic Elton John looks complete with dollar sign earrings, funky suits and outrageous glasses. Ultimate Elton has taken his act to another level by recording his very own music video to Elton's hit 'I'm Still Standing'. On YouTube this video already received over 90,000 hits so make sure you catch Ultimate Elton at the IAStival.

Tag. In all honesty, it would not surprise me if these big name brand stores were selling replica Rolex watches for triple the cost, that is how hard it is to tell the authentic from the replica.
